Doc, 12 min

Between the equinox and the solstice, the shepherds prepare their sheep for the summer pastures by shearing their wool coats. At the farm “L’Agneau des garrigues” in Southern France, four-year-old Jeanne discovers and partakes in this yearly tradition. The village festivities announce spring’s arrival with a song on the boudègue as the community celebrates together. 

This short documentary shows a day on a traditional sheep farm, exploring the relationship between humans and nature. Children and animals play alongside one another while the shepherds attend to their flocks, all in perfect harmony.
